    Took my grandson for a outing all day today, and just shot images, with no care for composing/framing, no regard to any so-called rules of photography, just me and my 2 E-PL1's, one with the 14mm, one with the 45mm, and just having fun.... My grandsons battery died on the Samsung ST76 that I bought him.....as he shot many shots.......he is 10.


    anyways, here was our day, thru the eyes of the E-pl1...

    very nice. How are your indoor museum shots so crisp? Did you shoot raw and post process? I have e-pl1. I would like to know the setting you used for the shots.

    I have yet to shoot raw with the E-pl1, always shoot jpg since they come out so nicely, I was using both the 14mm and 45mm, and I almost always shoot wide open, and just mess with shutter speed to draw in more light or less light. Always ISO200, for PP, I tend to add brightness or subtract, add contrast, of course resize, do some noise reduction if needed, then I do some smart sharpening if needed.....

    my E-pl1 is set to Vivid.....

    Wow, great stuff. You're the only grandma I know with a 600hp Camaro with a flame job. My grandma drove an International Scout. :frown:

    I'm pretty sure my grandma's Scout wouldn't have done 122 if you dropped it out of a plane. :tongue:

    I'm also thrilled with the colors and crispness of the straight out of the camera jpegs I get from my E-PL1 like the one below taken with the factory original 14-42mm kit lens, f4.5 ISO 100, Vivid, +1 in camera sharpening, -1 Amber and +1 Green white balance compensation.

    Really nice and sharp pictures, for some reason #18 really stood out for me, nice subject separation, colours and great exposure.

    Do you really drag race?

    Thank you...

    that was a chance shot, I saw this gentleman and fired off right away, as I like getting a shot, of the person getting a shot.... the 45mm was used
    here...

    I had a 471hp 2003 Dodge SRT-4 neon, which was built up later and hit 637hp, and at that time in 2005 it became the highest HP privetly owned Neon in the Country, me and my family used to drag race every weekend, but now I just cruise, though I need to get the Camaro out and see what she can do, she is faster then the GTO....

    my 2003 Neon, this was when it was only 471hp:

    11-12.

    11-14.

    11-13.

    Since I only have the CS2 version of Photoshop, and Adobe chose to stop supporting Raw updates for new cameras long before the E-PL1 came out, I've just been using jpg as well. I could go through the extra step of converting the Oly ORF format into DNG first, but it's just another hassle to keep me from being out shooting. I agree with you that the OOC results with just a bit of PP are beautiful.
